The Green3 are hand selected from Black3 production runs which meet higher test specifications. Approximately 15% of the run usually exhibits these specs and becomes a Green3. Green3 uses a three-piece OTL cantilever that has a Grado®-specific diamond mounted on a brass bushing.
Grado’s® OTL stylus/cantilever design makes records sound quieter, improves the height, width, and depth of the soundstage, and presents more detail than previously obtainable.
The Green3 is hand-assembled in Brooklyn, with some builders having over 25 years of experience. With the recent development of the highly received Lineage Series of cartridges, we were able to have a trickle-down of technology and bring a new technique to the Green3.
As in all Grado® phono cartridges, the Green3 is powered by a twin magnet system that optimizes the balance between stereo channels. All internal magnetic circuit parts are held to extremely high tolerances creating the desired stereo imaging. Grado’s® patented Flux-Bridger design allows the Green3 to have one of the lowest effective moving mass-generating systems while creating an excellent balance throughout the full frequency range.
The development of the Epoch in the Lineage Series gave us an in-depth experience with using an outer housing as a damping device. This led to the creation of a process that de-stresses the chassis and dissipates unwanted energy & resonant frequencies, allowing the desired signal to travel freely.
